What will your dog learn?
We know how daunting taking on a new rescue can be so, we’ve designed this course to build confidence in both you and your dog! The course is also suitable for ‘older pups’ who may have missed out on our Puppy Starters courses.
The 6 week course has a friendly, professional atmosphere so you can learn new skills – starting with easier training and building towards more complex exercises each week. Together, you’ll develop your understanding of training and your bond with each other! NB: Your dog must be over 6 months of age and fully vaccinated to attend.
- Getting more focus on you!
- Recall – come when called
- Loose lead walking
- Trust building exercises (learning body language)
- Vet time is fun time! (The bucket game)
- ‘Leave’ an object when asked
- ‘Wait’ when asked
- Polite greetings – paws on floor.
- The “Go Say Hi” game
- Canine Enrichment & Brain Game
Please note these classes are held in a group setting so may not be suitable for dogs with reactivity towards other dogs/people – you will find 121 sessions much more helpful.
